TimeXtender, a recognized global software company enabling self-service BI and analytics, has announced that it has been named a certified technology partner with Tableau Software.
Tableau selects its partners with what it considers leading technology companies in the data and analytics industry and suitable with Tableau products and solutions. TimeXtender was therefore selected as a new partner as its Discovery Hub works seamlessly with Tableau, allowing customers to make business decisions in a timely manner based on data that is important to them. Discovery Hub is an innovative architecture enabling self-service BI & analytics that couples closely with Tableau, which provides the data visualization needed.
“TimeXtender Discovery Hub offers organizations a great way to provide business users the data they need, by providing a self-service environment that can serve data to Tableau customers. It provides a way for people across the enterprise to look and evaluate data based on the same numbers, calculations and definitions,” said Todd Talkington, Director of Technology Partnerships at Tableau. “We are excited to work with partners, like TimeXtender, which further the capabilities of governed self-service analytics for our joint customers.”
Furthermore, TimeXtender’s Discovery Hub helps companies ensure that corporate data is governed, compliant, and secured, while making it available for the right business user as needed, when needed. Through automation, Discovery Hub creates and manages enterprise-wide data models that ensure one source and one view, allowing for friction-free communication across the organization, ensuring one single view of all KPI’s. It is a highly scalable solution since models and transformations are built once, meaning everyone using Tableau can benefit from these governed models and therefore avoid tailored reports and silos of extractions and transformations.
“Discovery Hub helps customers deal with the challenges they face on a daily basis by providing a compliant, well-governed and secured, self-service data platform for corporate business users,” said Jørgen Kaufmann, CEO of TimeXtender. “Together with Tableau, TimeXtender can serve joint customers even further, providing them a tightly integrated data platform that is a scalable solution that bridges the gap between business and IT, allowing users to make decisions based on a ‘single version of the truth.’”
Alliances with Tableau Partners in U.S. and Europe
TimeXtender commences this worldwide Tableau partnership with alliance agreements in place in both the U.S. and Europe.
“For business users, getting access to corporate data is always an issue, but by adding Discovery Hub from TimeXtender to our portfolio our customers have a better and faster way to organize and standardize their data,” said Gary Storr, managing director of CSpring, a Tableau Alliance Partner and IT consulting company in the U.S. “Discovery Hub allows us to reach new customers by offering an enterprise-wide platform – a far more scalable solution.”
“SDG is excited about being able to offer an even-tighter integration with TimeXtender’s Discovery Hub with Tableau, so that our customers can create consistent reports and KPIs in minutes, based on well-governed and validated data,” said Andrea Tagliaferro, CEO at SDG Italy.
TimeXtender Adding New Tableau Partners
In addition, with the announcement of this new Tableau technology partnership, TimeXtender is looking to add new Tableau partnerships across all global regions. This alliance will allow Tableau partners to offer TimeXtender’s Discovery Hub to existing customer sites, acquire new customers, provide more Tableau solutions, and offer greater value and satisfaction to existing and future customers.
